MLB Investigating Claim That Marlins Pitcher Jarred Cosart Bet On Sports

We have no idea if Jarred Cosart bets on sports. (Maybe you do! Let's talk.) MLB doesn't either, but it intends to find out. After last nights emergence of screenshots of Twitter messages claiming to show the Marlins starter talking bets, MLB has announced that its Department of Investigations will look into the… » 3/25/15 11:30am Wednesday 11:30am

Giancarlo Stanton Will Wear This Cool Face Guard

Yes, That Damn Marlins Fan Is Back

Miami Marlins fan Laurence Leavy is a regular behind home plate at the World Series, and he's in his usual spot for tonight's Game 1. But since we still get questions about him, here's our post from two years ago. » 10/21/14 8:25pm 10/21/14 8:25pm

Marcell Ozuna's Throw Home Almost Hits His Teammates In The Dugout

Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna, who has previously made good throws, was attempting to throw home on David Wright's two-run single with the bases loaded yesterday. It was not good. » 9/02/14 2:06pm 9/02/14 2:06pm

Giancarlo Stanton Is Rightfully Wary Of The Marlins' Stink

Giancarlo Stanton is having a tremendous year. He leads the NL in WAR, and he's carried a plucky young Miami Marlins team that is without ace José Fernández to a .500 record and within range of a Wild Card spot. On a normal team, a season like this would leave a player like Stanton feeling enthused about the… » 8/26/14 1:56pm 8/26/14 1:56pm

Adeiny Hechavarria Momentarily Saves Game With Great Diving Grab

The Rockies beat the Marlins 5-4 on a walk-off single in the 13th inning Saturday and the only reason it wasn't an inning earlier is because of this play. With two outs and men on the corners, Justin Morneau hit a flare out into no man's land between second base and left-center field. Adeiny Hechavarria turned his… » 8/24/14 11:35am 8/24/14 11:35am

Giancarlo Stanton Can Put On One Hell Of A Show

If you watched a baseball game last night that wasn't between the Cardinals and the Marlins, you watched the wrong damn baseball game. That's because the game you watched didn't have Giancarlo Stanton in it, who turned the evening into his own personal highlight factory. » 8/12/14 9:21am 8/12/14 9:21am

Dan Jennings Hit In Head By Screaming Line Drive

This is legitimately terrifying. Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer hit a line drive right back at Marlins pitcher Dan Jennings and hit him square in the head. He immediately went down to the ground and then scrambled around on the mound before getting up, freezing, staring blankly into space, and then staggering around… » 8/07/14 9:59pm 8/07/14 9:59pm

Blocking-The-Plate Rule Screws Marlins; Mike Redmond Starts Undressing

The Marlins got boned in a major way by the new and confusing rule that prohibits catchers blocking the plate. Although Zack Cozart was initially ruled out by home plate umpire Mike Winters, a lengthy umpire review eventually overturned the call and ruled him safe. Instead of a 1-0 Marlins lead heading into the… » 7/31/14 10:30pm 7/31/14 10:30pm

The Marlins' Nickname For Casey McGehee Is Just A Modified Boob Joke

Nobody really pays much attention to the Miami Marlins, so we are guessing that not nearly enough people are aware of infielder Casey McGehee's nickname: "Hits McGehee." » 7/22/14 11:51am 7/22/14 11:51am

Young Marlins Fan Returns For His Second Dance

We were all captivated (and slightly weirded out) by the Vine of that little Marlins fan who freaked the hell out when he got on camera. Tonight, the Marlins found him again, so yes, that rascal's a real dancing machine. » 7/01/14 10:11pm 7/01/14 10:11pm

Young Marlins Fan Gets On Camera, Completely Loses His Mind

At a recent Marlins game, the camera panned through the stands and lingered on one small fan, putting him on the jumbotron. Fans often notice when this happens, and they get excited and wave at the camera and everyone has a nice time. This kid, though, took things to another level, creating the greatest moment in… » 6/25/14 8:23am 6/25/14 8:23am

This Giancarlo Stanton Home Run Is Just Absurd

We're used to marveling at Giancarlo Stanton homers because of how far they fly. Last night, however, it was one of the shortest dingers you'll ever see him hit that brought the latest demonstration of his ridiculous strength. » 6/17/14 10:03am 6/17/14 10:03am
